    Nightstar,

    Anything to do with acid-free or archival quality paper is generally expensive.

    I had an instructor who swear on acid free boards for his mounting of prints. The boards have natural color something like very light beige.

    You could try to buy mounting boards from Letraset and DIY your album.

    Thanks dreamseeker for setting my expectations right...I guess I was looking out for something slightly more expensive than normal photo albums. Letraset is based in UK...not willing to fork out so much (++ shipping charges)...think maybe I go try the local websites as suggested earlier

    Nightstar,

    Letraset is also here locally. Near to Bugis area. As they supply to the museums and libraries locally, their stuff are normally acid free.

    Letraset Singapore Pte Ltd
    4 Jalan Klapa
    Singapore 199316
    Tel: 6391-1101

    Btw, I bought my acid free neg sleeves via mail order from overseas. The good thing was that it was much cheaper than the normal ones sold locally.

    Dreamseeker,

    I just called Letraset...the lady told me they do not carry acid free paper at all nor any other paper that is suitable for mounting photos ...think I will check out other websites as suggested earlier...but thanks for your suggestion.
